Change Your Talk, Change Yourself
If you can imagine it, you can do it.
The power of positive self-talk is huge. Every time we change a negative statement (ďI canít do thatĒ) to a positive (ďI choose not to do that right nowĒ), we send a message of strength and self-care to our inner selves.
Positive thoughts are success-oriented. You can eliminate the word ďcanítĒ from your vocabulary and learn how to change other all-too-common negative statements to positives, here:
I canít stand that–becomes–I feel resistant to that
I canít do it–becomes–I havenít yet learned how, or I choose not to do that right now
I canít see that–becomes–I donít yet see that clearly.
I canít handle that–becomes–Thatís been difficult for me until now.
I canít remember–becomes–I donít recall right now, but it will come in a moment.
It isnít working–becomes–I havenít yet seen results
I donít know how–becomes–I havenít yet learned how
Itís terrible–becomes–It has got to get better
Itís a failure–becomes–I learned something from this
